Komputer Działa!!

I think I may have fixed my computer. If you can read Polish, then you'd know that I was having computer problems, but a little help from google sent me in the right direction and the computer seems to be working. The problem was that a file was corrupt or missing, and as it was a rather important file, the computer refused to boot. I copied the back-up version of the file from a secret folder that I didn't realise existed, and now the computer seems to be operating as well as it used to. After booting, I attempted to run a virus check, but my virus software is faulty, which I suspect was the cause of the problem, a theory supported by Liam's girlfriend whose computer had a similar problem when her identical virus scanner screwed up.

I've been using a programme called AVG, and I've found it good up until now, but I'm open to suggestions if anyone out there on the interweb has experience with other, preferably better, virus scanners. I prefer my software to be of the "free" variety.

Mark's a bum

I forgot to mention in my note about the Circus of the Sun that I went with various people including Mark. Mark recently displayed some impressive coordination while attempting to play football (soccer). He broke his arm, and due to this injury he has been unable to shave himself, which has resulted in him cultivating a hobo look. Yes, Mark's a hobo. I bet he sleeps in a cardboard box. Mel pointed out that Mark seems to be able to remove his cast when he wants to type, but seems disinclined to do so when it comes to taking care of personal hygiene.

Unfortunately I forgot to take my digital camera on Wednesday night, so I don't have a photo of Mark in hobo guise. If anyone could help with supplying a Hobo Mark photo, I'd be temporarily grateful.

Brak Pliku

Mój nowy komputer nie działa bo on mowi że on ma brak pliku lub on nie ma plika. Wiem że plik jest bo mogę oglądać go, ale to jest móżliwe że plik jest popsute. Chcę że komputer diała ale nie wiem jak zrobić.
Plik był w komputerze w sobotą rano ale nie był w sobotą wieczorem (ostatni tydzień, nie dzisiaj).

(Pisałem ile błądy?)

Cirque and moles

I went to Cirque du Soleil 'Varekai' on Wednesday night with various people. The performance was fantastic. I'd definitely recommend it to everyone. This was the second Cirque du Soleil show that I've ever seen and it has confirmed my desire to see as many as possible. I'm quite annoyed now that I missed Saltimbanco and Allegria when they were here.

In other news, I may have to remove a nasty mole from my life. But don't worry - I'm not referring to any of my faithful readers this time, just to a strange-looking thing growing on my leg. It has increased in size and become itchy, so it definitely requires a professional medical opinion.

In other news, a student in my class had this phrase printed (amoung others) on his shirt: Sweet and pure like a honey-coated nun.
I suspect he didn't really know the meaning of it and was just going with the fashion in Asia of wearing anything with English words on it, regardless of the meaning or evening if the grammar is remotely correct.

Strange Text Message

My mobile telephone beeped tonight, signalling that someone had sent me a text message using the short message service. It was from an unknown number, apparently from a creature called "Katie".
Here's the message:

All spelling, punctuation and capitalisation is verbatim from the message. I've never been to Cairn, only to its plural town.

Thou shalt be jealous!

I am eating Berry Cake biscuits (available from ALDI). They're delicious. Also, I have just won $20 on an instant scratch-it. Yay for me.

My fastest time for intermediate minesweeper on my desktop computer is 42 seconds, which isn't a particularly fast time (I have a better score on my laptop) but it is a cool number. The same applies for my current expert score of 123 seconds.

New DVD's! Yay! Exciting!

I have recently expanded my DVD collection with some fantastic titles. The first of these was Hairspray, the second and third were discs one and two of The Happy Tree Friends, which I have already mentioned. The fourth disc to include itself in my collection is Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!, a fantastic film by Russ Meyer, and the latest disc, already mentioned, arrived today: Delicatessen, a french film about a rather bizarre post-apocalyptic community.

All of these films/dvd's are fantastic and give me a dvd collection that would make most people jealous*.

* I say most people because Rowan still has a more impressive collection, in number and due to some titles, such as Freaks.
